Racquet Club Apartments
Resident · 2012 - 2014
First off, for the price, it is not to bad. I lived here with my wife for two years in a second story one bedroom apartment. I think we paid around 750$ a month. I actually worked next door at Antelope Valley hospital and Debbie, one of the on site managers, was nice enough to give me a key to a side gate allowing me to just walk to work. For me it was really convenient and because of this, my wife and I only needed one car. It was a nice arrangement for me to just walk to work. Here are some things I did not like about the apartments. First, all the one bed room apartments border and sorround the pool. During summer, the pool is loud and at times I feel the people using the pool are not even tenants. Because of this constant crowding, I never used the pool once, which is disappointing. People will find a way to take advantage because the sign on the gate states the pool is to be closed at 10pm. One of the grounds workers is supposed to lock the gate, which is never done, allowing a free for all to take place sometimes until 2-3 in the morning. I had a lot of frustrated nights in the summer. People also liked to drink in the spa and get a bit too rowdy. Frustrating for me. Also, there are two apartments complexes located on the racquet club grounds. As you drive in, the leasing office and most of the management live in the first half. The second half, divided by basketball courts and tennis courts, is where I lived. The second half is a tad bit more forgotten than the first half. I had an ***hole neighbor that was a younger low life that liked to smoke weed with his loser friends in the parking space next to ours. I hated it and I wanted kick him in the teeth. Here is my advice and I suggest you take it. If you can afford the apartments with more than one bed room. Lease those. They are bigger and the layout is more comfortable than the cramp one bed room homes. Also, you will be far away from the loud obnoxious swimming pool. Second, get an apartment, hopefully they are available, in the first half of the complex by the leasing office. It is nicer. Third, this place is older do don't expect something too fancy. just the basics. I moved in with new carpet and painted walls. What else can you ask for. Finally, in the larger multi bedroom apartments to can get stackable washers and dryers. I wish I had this because the community wash room is a drag and people frequently leave there stuff after the wash cycle leaving you waiting for them to come down. Hopefully my review helps. Would I live here again? Yes. But it would be in a two/ three bedroom, away from the pool, next to the leasing office w/ stackable washers and dryers.
